What's your anti-virus? Some people have reported their anti-virus puts a lock on the Firefox profile while scanning. This leaves Firefox (and extensions like Adblock Plus) unable to write to the original files, which then causes duplicates to be created. Try adding the Firefox profile folder, or just the \adblockplus subfolder to the scanning exceptions.

Uninstalling Adblock Plus doesn't normally remove either your filters or your Adblock Plus preferences. Still, you can create backups of your filters.
- Click the toolbar icon.
- Click Filter Preferences.
- Click the Backup and Restore button in the bottom left corner of the window.
- Click Create New Backup.
